Re: Help copying files
I went to command prompt and typed in robocopy/? and looked at all the
syntax and to tell you the truth I was well confused.
I checked out Total Copy, unfortunatly on the web site it says it says it
copys a little quicker. I think i will have to wait till SP1 to come out to
sort out my copying problem out.
At the moment I am copy a gig or two and rebooting the computer and then
copying some more.
Can anyone tell me is robocopy good at copying large ammounts of files from
a usb drive to a network drive?
